This paper proposes to study the relationship between Chen Fuliang's (1137 -1203) study of The Spring and Autumn Annals and his classical prose, especially how the former influenced the latter. Chen's main contribution to the study of The Spring and Autumn Annals are: 1 ) studying the changes in the world from a historical perspective and 2) the writing principle of The Spring and Autumn Annals. Chen's view of how the world changes focuses on “inception,” “gradual development,” “accumulation,” and “limits.” His view of the writing principle of The Spring and Autumn Annals stresses the reciprocal relationship between the “classic” and its commentary. Chen Fuliang wrote his classical prose in light of his theory of The Spring and Autumn Annals，as seen in his prefaces, postscripts, letters, miscellaneous notes, epitaphs, sacrificial writing, and treatises. The aesthetic appeal in these classical prose pieces reflects Chen's scholarship.
